Here’s what you missed last week from my small corner of the crochet world…

The Latest…

Last week we finished the Halloween doily crochet-a-long! You can find the instructions here! I would love to see photos! Post them on Facebook or other social media and be sure to tag me!

A winner was randomly drawn for a digital copy of Annie’s A Very Crochet Christmas! Click on the link to see if it was you!

Did you know I’ve been away from the office over the past 4 weeks! I plan to post more about my trip in the upcoming weeks. Where did we travel – clear to Utah. We always travel up the central California coastline first visiting Solvang, Morro Bay, Cambria and Harmony (BTW – some of these places are currently shown in Westways magazine!). From there we traveled straight to Utah visiting Zion National Park and Bryce Canyon National Park. Highlights of our trip! Then on to the Grand Canyon and finally down to Camp Verde visiting some ancient ruins. I can’t wait share with you these phenomenal places!

Featured Patterns!

At Crochet Memories I have lots of patterns, but unless you’re looking for something specific, few people have the time to simply browse. It’s never too early to start on Christmas projects. Fun Thanksgiving crochet designs that should be on your must-make list!

Gobble Up Turkey Door Hanger

As with all holidays, I love decorating although I don’t do nearly the decorating I used to. But this sweet and adorable turkey door hanger is a must for Thanksgiving. Place over a door knob or hang from a hook, he’ll greet everyone with his knobby knees and cute tail feathers…

Pilgrim Girl Utensil Holder

If you’re thinking pilgrims for Thanksgiving; you just gotta try this sweet pilgrim girl. Whether you make a utensil holder, as designed or use the basket for holding mums or home baked goodies, she’s a must for your home!

Chicken Scratch Pillow

A wonderful way to bring in any holiday is with pillows. This cute pillow boasts a turkey that’s worked in “pieces” and then appliqued to the pillow front. It’s a bit country and it’s absolutely adorable for Thanksgiving!

Crochet News – say what?

Do you know where this crochet covered tree was found?

Crochet Magazines You’ll Love!

Who doesn’t look forward to magazines filled with new and awesome crochet patterns? Here are three – and yes, these are affiliate links!

This Week’s Menu Plans:

If you’ve followed the blog much, you’ll notice I publish my upcoming menu plans for each week. Why? Actually this is to keep me on the up and up. I tend to get busy and before I know it, I’m out of steam and if I don’t have something planned, it’s the same old question that plagues many households at around 6:00 in the evening with; “What’s for dinner?” “I don’t know, what sounds good…” until eventually you’re ordering pizza or running through the drive thru at McD’s. Here are my menu plans:

After a fun but exhausting 4 week vacation that was all over the place I’m so glad to be home and back to the same old-same old … [Read More…]

Crushing on Amazon

Who doesn’t love to shop? And who doesn’t love to save money. I’ve found that often when comparison shopping, Amazon has the best price and being a Prime member, means no shipping charges. These are what I’m looking at now…

Wouldn’t this animated witch be perfect for Halloween. HA Ha ha…
